I am a retired communications consultant with major firms, a writer, a newspaper columnist, blogger on mystery and crime novels and opinions on reading and writing. I live in Asheville N.C., having moved here from Chicago where I worked with one of the country's largest business and accounting co9nsulting firms. As a business writer for many years, I have written on every subject from health care issues through financial planning. I've worked with large clients--universities, insurers, corporations engaged in a variety of businesses--at the highest management levels. When I first retired to Asheville, I wrote a weekly local issues column which ran on the editorial page of the Asheville Citizen Times. That inspired a host of comments from readers, a most enjoyable time.

I love living in Asheville with its wonderful mountain scenery and diverse, interesting people. I still miss Chicago, though. My husband and I have children, grandchildren, greatgrands scattered across the country. For relaxation, I play the piano, listen to music, exercise, am involved in church and community activities. I of course love reading and love reviewing what I read, and I have lots of opinions on this and that. I will share these with articles on many different subjects from time to time.
